CLOCK Face Miners pulled off a remarkable comeback to twice overturn a huge deficit to claim a 36-38 win at Oldham St Annes.

A physically strong Oldham outfit got off to a great start, overpowering a young Clock Face side to score four converted tries in the opening 30 minutes to take a 24-0 lead.

It was looking ominous for Clock until Luke Leyden scored after leaping to take a Jack Highcock cross-field kick.

A Callum Topping try, converted by Highcock, pulled Clock to within 14 points at half time.

Following the break, Oldham and Clock exchanged a try apiece, with Leyden scoring his second.

However, Oldham edged out to 36-16 with a further try and penalty with just 20 minutes to go.

Clock did not give in and roared back to 36-34 with tries by Andy Smith, Leyden for a third time and Alex Burke, who powered 60 metres while breaking through five tackles in the process.

But it was Michael Carney who sent the Clock following into a frenzy when he picked up a loose ball to score the match winner.
